Excerpt from Recent Happenings in Persia
I would, then, ask my Persian friends to believe that my criticism is actuated by no feeling of un friendliness, but Solely by a desire to present facts in their true colours.
I have to acknowledge my great indebtedness to H. H. Hormoz Mirza for having kindly offered to read that portion of this book which had been written prior to my departure from Persia, and for having placed at my disposal his wide knowledge regarding events and conditions. The Opinions expressed are, however, my own, since he agreed with me that it would be out of place for a native of the country to attempt to in¿uence the impression formed by a soj ourner.
